”If we don't defend
anything anymore,
we are just love!”

In this retreat you can find some ‘time-out’ from your habitual environment and join us in a beautiful, wild summer nature. In the daily Satsangs with John David you can come deeply into resonance with the source of your being and discover a very profound degree of relaxation and love.

The energy field of the whole retreat group, the mixture of eastern and western Europeans, supports you to settle down in the feeling of coming home and enjoy love and lightness in yourself and with others.

In this retreat you

  • Relax and gain a greater stress tolerance
  • Clarify your mind and connect to your heart
  • Recharge and regain your inner power
  • Get effective guidance to true happiness

Summer Retreat in Tripillya
18 July - 2 August

The Open Sky House Retreat Center Trypillia is located directly on the banks of a large inlet of the great Dnieper River, one hour from Kiew. The beauty of this still pristine nature supports you to relax deeply and focus on the essence.
An ideal place to spend time on your own. You can swim and take relaxing walks. Ideally to withdraw from the demands of your daily life-style and reconnect with your inherent stillness, peace, love and creativity.
